French flea market finds

So, last weekend I went to Lille for La Braderie – want to see what came back avec moi?

French jam jars were actually on my shopping list so I was pleased to track these down. I’m hosting a dinner party next weekend and I plan to set the table using these jars as water glasses with the napkins and cutlery inside to save space on my dinky tulip table. If you’re wondering, the linen napkins are from H&M and I picked up the monogrammed cutlery last year at Wimbledon car boot.

I already had a few old pharmacy bottles in my bathroom and had to have this French medicine advertising poster as soon as I spied it.

Lastly, this has to be my favourite. There were enough charming old French toys amongst the stalls that my friend and I were debating how I could incorporate a toy department into my dream of opening a little vintage homeware / florist / tea shop one day. In the meantime, I’ll have to make do with this little chap. Isn’t he sweet?

      Lille is amazing but Wimbledon can be hit and miss. I think the most recent time I went it had gone downhill again too.
